      24/20 6.3% 3bet, 89 hands, had been aggressive postflop

      I called his turn bet with the intention to rep a king on the river if checked to. Ok?

      Hi.

      Why don't you just bet the Flop? Flop is dry and we get to fold out King highs and queen highs and some suited connectors. We can also barrel on a variety of cards like the King or Jack on the Turn.

      Thanks.

      Yeah I'm probably not cbetting enough flops. My cbet F for the month is only 52% (turn and river cbet 64%). This is on the low side?


      I don't bet the flop because his range is stronger then mine and the flop is dry so I didn't expect him to fold much, if any, of his range. But not cbetting the flop doesnt mean I'm totally giving up.

      I can still bet a scare card on the turn. I suppose if I bet the flop, then I will get an extra card.

      50% cbet flop could be fine if u have well balanced ranges. At lower limits its probably optimal to cbet 70% of flops cos people just dont fight hard enough for them.
